Joint ptychography and tomography (JPT) is a recently developed framework that enables high-resolution reconstruction of 3D volumes with significantly relaxed constraints on probe overlap at adjacent scan positions. In ptychographic X-ray computed tomography (PXCT) experiment scanning translations are controlled with high-precision piezo-stages, while run-out errors of rotational stages are corrected by aligning phase-retrieved projections. However, such projections are by definition not…

Alignment methods for nanotomography with deep subpixel accuracy.
This work presents an alignment toolkit, which exploits methods with deep-subpixel accuracy combined with a multi-resolution scheme, which leads to robust and accurate alignment with significantly reduced computational and memory requirements.
Rapid alignment of nanotomography data using joint iterative reconstruction and reprojection
This approach is based on a joint estimation of alignment errors, and the object, using an iterative refinement procedure, and shows a residual alignment error that is a factor of a thousand smaller, and it reaches the same error level in the reconstructed image in less than half the number of iterations.
Photon-limited ptychography of 3D objects via Bayesian reconstruction
We introduce a Bayesian framework for the ptychotomographic imaging of 3D objects under photon-limited conditions. This approach is significantly more robust to measurement noise by incorporating
Automated angular and translational tomographic alignment and application to phase-contrast imaging.
An iterative reconstruction algorithm for wrapped phase projection data and an alignment algorithm that automatically takes 5 degrees of freedom, including the possible linear and angular motion errors, into consideration are presented.
Probe retrieval in ptychographic coherent diffractive imaging.
Direct coupling of tomography and ptychography.
A generalization of the ptychographic phase problem is presented for recovering refractive properties of a three-dimensional object in a tomography setting and can enable the reconstruction of objects using highly flexible acquisition patterns and pave the way for sparse and rapid data collection with lower radiation exposure.
Alignment of low-dose X-ray fluorescence tomography images using differential phase contrast.
Dose fractionation should be possible for reduced-dose, more rapidly acquired, fluorescence nanotomography experiments, by demonstrating that successive low dose, 3 ms per pixel, images acquired at the same specimen position and rotation angle have a narrower and smoother cross-correlation function than that obtained from zinc fluorescence images.
High-resolution scanning coherent X-ray diffraction microscopy
Scanning transmission x-ray microscopy (STXM) and coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) are imaging techniques that have evolved quite separately. STXM features straightforward data analysis but its
Direct three-dimensional tomographic reconstruction and phase retrieval of far-field coherent diffraction patterns
We present an alternative numerical reconstruction algorithm for direct tomographic reconstruction of a sample refractive indices from the measured intensities of its far-field coherent diffraction
Quantitative x-ray phase imaging at the nanoscale by multilayer Laue lenses
This work proposes a highly robust and generic approach based on a Fourier-shift fitting process and demonstrates quantitative phase imaging of a solid oxide fuel cell anode by multilayer Laue lenses (MLLs), which is extremely powerful in correlating the electrode performance with its buried nanoscale interfacial structures.
